Salmon relay

Hello everyone, maybe you guys can help me out on this.
I'm trying to find the location for the salmon relay in my car, keep in mind that my car is a 530i spot package with an SMG tranny but it's not an M series, I search on the passenger side engine compartment, trunk and glove box but I do not see that salmon colored relay. I went to BMW and they have never heard of an SMG 530i
Does anybody know where this relay would be in my car? Please help me out I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks!

Symptoms are the usual get stuck in gear and the tranny malfunction warning.

I have no idea. I'm just trying to change it because most people talk about it fixing the SMG issues

Maybe just like the fish, the salmon coloured relay causes your car to always return to the dealer ship...................;-P

According to my Bentley manual, the SMG control module and hydraulic pump relay are in the E-box at the right rear of the engine compartment.
